What happens when a diehard static fanatic and drifter meet? Well, you see the beginning of something beautiful. Having met both Andrew Lachmansingh and Jonathan Prem earlier this year, you would never guess both these guys were on bags. Hailing from the Greater Toronto Ares, these guys set out to show the world they can roll harder on bags!nissan-240sx-s14-honda-accord-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-008Andrew had already purchased his first set of wheel for his immaculate Accord Coupe before even purchasing the car. So what makes a static fanatic jump to air? Well, like most, he was tired of getting pulled over and wanted solution to drive low safely on a daily basis.nissan-240sx-s14-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-013After a quick search, the coupe was equipped with AirREX front and rear air suspension kit paired with AccuAir’s E-Level management including dual Viair 400c compressors and stage 2 exo mounts topped off with a custom wood floor trunk setup all thanks to the Kevin and the boys over at Air Assisted also known as Altered Altitude.nissan-240sx-s14-honda-accord-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-014Next came time for a fresh set of re-lipped shoes courtesy of Blain at Righteous Garage. nissan-240sx-s14-bagged-honda-accord-air-suspension-airsociety-015These Weds Kranze measure out at a massive 19×11 ET+6 up front and 19×12 ET-6 in the rear. Although Andrew does admit he wants to go bigger out back once the season is over.nissan-240sx-s14-honda-accord-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-015Righteous garage made sure to get the fitment on point using the SPC ball joints and upper control arms up front and SPC camber caster and toes arms out back.nissan-240sx-s14-honda-accord-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-016Finally, a set of HFP side skirt, Sarona rear windshield spoiler and the magic from Joey from Parkway Atlantic made sure the bodywork was on point with the widened and flared fender and quarter panels.nissan-240sx-s14-honda-accord-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-009Then there’s the drifter and his 1995 240sx. Jonathan worked 2 jobs to fund his project and main a normal life. He actively tracked his car until an unfortunate accident that forced him off the track and caused the destruction of the front end. His buddy Sunny was there to help him pick up the pieces and rebuild.nissan-240sx-s14-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-004That’s where Jagraj and his amazing team from Co-up Autobody come in. They worked their magic to restore the car to glory which included installing and painting a BN Sports Type 4 kit including BN Sports 30mm wide fenders up front, Chargespeed 50mm fenders out back. The exterior was topped off with a set of clear Dmax LED taillights, signals and side markers.nissan-240sx-s14-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-003This mean machine is more than a pretty face. Thanks Ken at Enjukuracing Under the hood, you’ll find and S13 Sr20det with HKS stage 1 Cams, ARP headstuds and Apexi head gasket fueled by Nismo 555 Inj, Aermotive FPR+ CS Fuel rail ran through AN lines. A Garrett GT2871R .64 Turbo, HKS BOV, ISIS Intake Mani, Meagan Exhaust Mani, flowing through a Powerbymax Cobra Downpipe, Catco High flow cat and Buddyclub Spec 2 exhaust were added to make sure that this beast could throw down some serious power. This wouldn’t be possible without the help of the Nismo lightweight Flywheel and Spec Stage 3 clutch and the Wiring specialist harness to tie it all together.nissan-240sx-s14-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-006So what makes a drifter decide to invest in air? According to Jonathan, it was the insane traffic jams he would cause attempting to get into parking lots without damaging his expensive body kit. nissan-240sx-s14-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-005He reached out and found the perfect option in the Air Lift Performance Series bag setup paired with a 5 gallon tank, single ViAir 444c and Autopilot V2 digital management. Although, you won’t find him driving much higher than his aired out height.nissan-240sx-s14-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-007Finally came the finishing touch to this beautiful build, a set of Weds Kranze LXZ that measure out at 18×10.5 ET-28, which took some toying to get them to clear the BBK up front and 18×11 ET-45 out back to make sure there’s lip for days!nissan-240sx-s14honda-accord-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-010All in all, Both Andrew and Jonathan have unique creations that push the bar and test the limits of air suspension. If you ask either of them, it has allowed them to test new lows of driving. nissan-240sx-s14-Honda-Accord-bagged-air-suspension-airsociety-011
